Welcome to /rocks/.
Here we talk about anything related to rocks, fossils, minerals, or crystals. Feel free to post about rocks you like or whatever you have in your collection or your recent outing to a museum or a mineral show or auction.
You could also try having a mystery rock be identified by other anons if you want.
Any other geology questions welcome.

Any other Tucson visitors in here? What shows do you like to go to? I always hit the 22nd Street show and Fine Minerals International during my first days in town, then go to the main TGMS show on the last day, when the dealers are a smidge more desperate for a sale and I can talk them down pretty far past their asking price with the promise of paying in cash.

One thing I like about iron meteorites is the strange looking Widmanstätten patterns it has. They remind me of fragments from some random alien spaceship from far away.

I was scrolling through Morpth Market as usual. Nothing special, just looking at hoggies, sand boa etc... I wanted to see if any new anthill python were posted. Anthills are usually under Other Python tab and this add was posted. This made me really confused. What does /an/ think of this?

They're meme animals, barely fit for work or family life. They're not overly playful nor are they social butterflies, but they like attention and company from a select few. Pit bulls are about as average as any dog can be, just geared to be a little too dumb and a little too strong for their own good. 4/10, only for enthusiasts and bachelors.

Wait really? It was self defence though

Feel free to discuss or argue about all things related to extinct flora and fauna here. For example, the lip question. Did many extinct animals have lips covering their teeth or were the teeth exposed? Does shrinkwrapping fossils give an accurate representation of what extinct creatures really looked like? Does the T. rex have feathers on top of its head and along its spine? Is the spinosaurus quadrupedal? Why do people ignore paleo invertebrates? Will taxonomists ever stop being autistic? Find out more in this episode of /paleo/ General.

I'm not convinced they're extinct. I'm not one for conspiracies or cryptid hunting, but there are videos on YouTube which have convinced me that at least a few thylacines are clinging on.

She shot down the paper for an Ankylosaur that proved a connection to Asian ankylosaurs because she was trying to publish Zuul, which proves the same connection. Once she had published Zuul, she let it get published. I'm pretty sure it was Akainacephalus.

Fuck her.

In my experience the stereotypes are true. Male rats are very sweet and cuddly but their nuts are huge. Female rats are hyper and funny

I'm assuming it would be ill-advised to get a pair of rats if you live in an apartment that has no AC and gets really hot during the summers?

Back in 2006 I caught two alpine salamanders and kept them for a short time before releasing them back where I found them. There are populations close to where I live, if you go hike on a rainy day there's a good chance you see one. Beautiful little guys. Pic was one of them.

I really want get some fire belly newts but can't find them for sale anywhere. I found some slimy salamanders for sale, but I was wondering if they can live together with fire belly toads or newts when I eventually get them.

>>2949307
They would probably end up poisoning the frogs

>Fell asleep shortly after opening this thread yesterday
>Have dream where I'm keeping salamanders
>One of them keeps biting off the other ones tails
>Being kept in a plastic deli-meat container with some mossy dirt in it
>No lid, they keep crawling out
>Put them in a large plastic bucket and the bitey one stops biting
I don't know if this dream is telling me I should get a pet salamander or I should never get a pet salamander.

stfu faggot i hate you

Listen guys, I’ve got a problem.
My cat is missing. He’s a two year old mixed breed and he’s a local special school therapy cat. We live in a somewhat woody area and he’s been gone for five days now. He’s a smart cat, doesn’t like conflict.
Maybe he got into a fight? Could a fox have eaten him? My elderly parents are out of their mind
>>
>>2949832
It's not unusual for cats to return after being gone for days or even weeks. Try leaving out stuff that might smell of your house or cat food.

Man I don't like cats at all, but there was some tik tok vids where the gook bitch put the cat in the washing machine really disturbed me. Couldn't read the dial, was in moonrunes but I am pretty sure it was set to hot water, and fast spin cycle. The poor thing had some kind of nerve damage or something afterwards, was twitching and spasming worse than a Parkinson's patient.
